The Perfect Cup of Tea

Metaphorically,
true friendship is...
a good hair day,
the perfect cup of tea - 
no red lights on the
way to work,
and the first night of sleep
on freshly washed
sheets.

Socially, 
it's a smile at the 
caller ID, 
a long conversation
full of honesty,
and empathy -
and the ability to 
pick up where 
you left off...
after two hours,
two days, or four months. 

Emotionally, 
it's companionable silence
where words are not 
necessary,
laughing at the ridiculous 
when it is,
and prayers in -
and through, 
the pain. 

Essentially, 
true friendship
is the ability to 
be your utterly
weird, and
wonderful self,
and feel perfectly 
and completely 
at home. 


Celebrating all of the wonderful people who let me be my weird little self, but especially my friend Candy, who is having a birthday today, and who is learning to love tea as much as I do. 🙂
